Guide on Dampness
Dampness can be caused by one of the following:


A 34 dampness



Leaking plumbing or central heating pipes, wastes or overflows

Rain seeping through the roof where a tile or slate is broken or missing

Over flowing spilling from a blocked gutter, broken gutters or down pipes

A34 broken downpipe



Rain penetrating from around the window or door frames

Rising damp is due to a defective damp-course or because there is no damp-course.

Rising damp usually appears in rooms at ground floor levels, and will rise in the walls only to a height of around 1m.

These types of dampness often leave a visual water mark.

If your home is newly built it may be damp because the water used during its construction (for example, in plaster) is still drying out.

If your home is damp for any of these reasons it may take weeks of heating and ventilation to dry out.

If you do not think the damp comes from any of these causes, then it may be a condensation
